Please identify your relationship to the people to whom you will be
sending the Email messages you're trying to craft with Perl, apparently
without any knowledge of the language.  We have reason to believe that
you are in the business of sending SPAM, which is a crime, or else
providing SPAM distribution services to clients, and we have a right to
take that information into account before offering you any assistance,
or permiting you to continue reading this list.

Note to SPAMmees:  Spamassassin, by Simon Cozens, is really good;
it's cut my personal spam down by about 95%!  It's written in Perl,
of course!  (see spamassassin.org).
